2791Record holder profile: Rob Hull - owner of the largest collection of DaleksBritish family man Rob Hull, from Doncaster, England is recognised for having the largest collection of Daleks, 571 models strong.His incredible collection, which includes a 6ft life size replica model, is a product of 20 years of passionate (and costly!) collecting.Interestingly Rob isn't a fan of the Doctor: "I've never been a fan of the show, but I have been enchanted by the Daleks ever since I saw one in a toy store as a child. My mum wouldn't buy it for me, but I swore at that moment that I'd have my own one day".At the age of 29 Rob purchased his first Dalek "They've just slowly taken over the house!"One person who won't be celebrating is his long-suffering wife of 25 years, Dawn, 43: "I hate the things and I've got a feeling this is only going to encourage him!"video

2794World's longest fruit snack record set in CanadaSeveral hundred Canadian children tasted a 100% edible Guinness World Record in the form of the world's longest fruit snack last month.The 91.44 meter (300 ft) long fruit snack, created by Sun-Rype Products Ltd of Kelowna, British Columbia, was unrolled and measured along the length of a football field at the local Parkinson Recreation Centre in Kelowna. Unrolling of the 14 kg fruit snack required a specially constructed mechanical cart that required three operators to ensure the snack was laid correctly. Having announced that measurements had been confirmed and all other guidelines were correctly followed, a Guinness World Records adjudicator invited all children present to taste the strawberry treat to ensure it met the final record guideline of being edible.In addition to setting a new Guinness World Record, the event raised funds for KidSport Canada, an organization that provides support to children in order to remove financial barriers that prevent them from playing organized sport.More than 500 people from the local community attended the event, enjoying free fruit snacks and drinks, and taking part in fun activites throughout the day, including a bouncy castle and a raffle ultimately raising $4,000 for KidSport Kelowna.

2804Longest animal in the seaSiphonophore Praya dubiaUnited States25 January 2002Although they superficially resemble true jellyfish and are distantly related to them, siphonophores are very different, special creatures. Remarkably, each individual siphonophore is actually a colony or super-organism, i.e. each part of its body is in reality a distinct highly specialized organism or zooid in its own right, adapted anatomically to fulfil a certain specific function (e.g. floating, stinging, feeding, reproducing). In other words, each of its tentacles is a separate organism, as is its float, each of its reproductive organs, each of its bells, etc. One species of siphonophore, Praya dubia, is considered to be the longest animal in the world measuring between 30–50 m (100–160 ft) in length. It has large paired transparent swimming bells at the head and trailing behind is a long stem made up of units called cormidia which it pulls through the water. Its thin tentacles can deliver a powerful sting and it also produces a blue bioluminescent glow.Praya are among the most commonly sighted siphonophores in the waters of central California and are identified by its bright yellowy stem colour.By way of comparison the blue whale is between 25-27 m long.

2814Fastest transoceanic return migration of a marine animal / Longest recorded journey of a sharkNicole the Great White SharkSouth Africa01 August 2004The record for the fastest time in which any known marine animal has been tracked completing a return migration across an entire ocean, is nine months and belongs to a great white shark that swam approximately 20,000 km (12,400 miles). On 7 November 2003, a team of researchers led by Dr Ramón Bonfil from the Wildlife Conservation Society (USA) electronically-tagged four sharks in South Africa, one of whom was nick-named Nicole (after the Australian actress and shark-lover, Nicole Kidman). In August 2004, Nicole was identified off the coast of South Africa, yet her timed-release tag was recovered in Australia six months earlier in February, where a satellite recorded its transmission. Thus, within nine months, Nicole had swam from South Africa to Australia and back, and in doing so completed the first – and the longest – recorded journey of a shark, crossing an entire ocean back and forth.During her trip, she also reached the greatest depth reliably measured for a white shark, 982 m (3,221 ft).
